Davey is a little five pound, eleven year old, Brussels Griffon who looks old beyond his years. He fell on hard times and did not have the best care as he was the beloved pet of an elderly gentleman who was unable to recognize his problems. He had a bad yeast infection that went untreated causing the pads on his feet to become swollen and deformed. It is now under control and his diet has been changed and he is doing well. He is healthy and has been recently neutered and had his teeth cleaned. He is up to date on inoculations and is on heartworm prevention.
Davey is the kind of Griffon that brings out your mothering instincts and all you will want to do
is love and protect him.
His foster mom says "He is so sweet and trusting and will probably do best in a home with other dogs he can follow around and learn what is expected of him because I don't think he sees very well. He is very wobbly when he walks and doesn't have great balance. He eats well, is fairly well housebroken, and MUST sleep in bed with his new family. He really likes Innova senior dog food and also loves bites of food from the table. Chicken is a real favorite of his, but he's not a very picky eater. Cheese is one of his favorite treats, and he does well eating the plain, no sugar added yogurt.
Being a typical griffon, he loves to find a sunny spot to lay in. His favorite bed here is a snuggle ball and he really prefers to lay with someone, so a home with another dog who doesn't mind sharing a bed would be great."
Davey is in Tennessee.
If you would like more information,
contact Marjorie Simon. If you
are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Keep in mind that we prefer
to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone
from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to
fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.
Davey has been Adopted!
